CASPER, Wyoming — Casper residents will decide in the coming weeks whether smoking should be allowed in the city's bars.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1FejqsT ) that the City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to leave the decision to voters. The election will be held in 20 to 60 days.
The council moved last week to repeal the ban on smoking in bars, which only went back into effect earlier this month.
The council was forced by state law to suspend the amendment allowing smoking in bars despite the city's ban on smoking in other establishments after city officials verified signatures on a petition that would have sent bar smoking to a public vote. Those signatures had originally been thrown out in 2013.
